Algebraic model of an oblate top

R Bijker, A Leviatan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


We consider an algebraic treatment of a three-body system. In particular, we develop the formalism for a system of three identical objects and discuss an application to nonstrange baryon resonances
which are interpreted as vibrational and rotational excitations of an oblate symmetric top. We derive closed expressions for a set of elementary form factors that appear in the calculation of both
electromagnetic, strong and weak couplings of baryons.
